To all members of the SAA.

Spring 2025 marks the 60th anniversary of the very first Japanese Tour Group Dr. Suzuki brought to the USA. The ISA is marking that anniversary by launching a project to collect any/all documents, programs, photos, video, film, etc. of that first Tour Group that might still exist with teachers or families. Teachers, please also alert former families in your studio, program, or area about this search.

Here is the itinerary for the 1964 Tour Group. Note if the 1964 Tour Group visited your city or close by to help in your search.

Any documents you discover can be scanned and emailed to the following address: [javascript protected email address]  

If you have any original documents, programs, pictures, or memorabilia that you would like to add to the ISA archive for this project, please mail them to the following address:

Allen Lieb, CEO
International Suzuki Association
P.O. Box 21065

The goal is to post an online archive by October 2024 in commemoration of Dr Suzuki’s birthday. Join us in this celebratory treasure hunt to highlight the founding of the Suzuki movement on this continent. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
